Thermal Management Market

Thermal Management Market by Material (Adhesives, Nonadhesive), Device (Conduction, Convection, Advanced, and Hybrid), Thermal Management Service (Installation & Calibration and Optimization & Post-sales Support), End-Use Industry, and Region – Global Forecast to 2024

Report Code: SE 5290 Jul, 2019, by

Thermal management market size was worth USD 11.1 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 16.2 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 8.0% during 2019–2024. Major drivers for the market are the rising demand for effective thermal management solutions and systems in consumer electronics; increasing use of electronic devices in different end-use industries; and ongoing radical miniaturization of electronic devices.

Thermal Management Market

Thermal management market for nonadhesive thermal management material is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period.”

The nonadhesive thermal management material market is expected to lead the market between 2018 and 2024. Nonadhesive materials such as thermal pads, gap fillers, and grease are used widely in consumer electronics such as computers, laptops, and other handheld devices such as tablets. Thermal pads are used to fill the gaps between heat sinks and microprocessors. They eliminate air gaps to reduce thermal resistance and provide low-stress vibration dampening. Elastomeric pads were developed as an alternative to grease-based solutions used earlier for thermal management.

“Thermal Management Market for Convection cooling devices expected to hold the largest market share from 2019 to 2024”

Convection cooling devices of in thermal management are increasingly being used in electronic components, electronic circuits, and PCBs. These devices help lower the peak temperature of different systems where they are installed with natural and forced convection cooling technologies. Devices such as loop heat pipes, heat pumps, heat sinks, and heat spreaders are used for effective cooling of processors and computers, among others.

“Thermal Management Market for Consumer electronics is expected to hold the largest market share from 2019 to 2024”

Thermal management solutions are used prominently in several consumer electronics such as personal computers, laptops, smartphones, and gaming devices. Thermal management in consumer electronics involves chip cooling to protect electronic components such as processors and transistors from overheating. For multi-core processors, the noise can be avoided by using large heat sinks, heat pipes, and cooling fans. For instance, high conductivity materials such as phase change materials (PCMs) and thermal interface materials are used widely in smartphones and laptops to manage the cooling of electronic components and integrated chips. Thus, an increasing number of processors and the shrinking size of electronic components is leading to the rise in demand for thermal management solutions and systems in consumer electronics.

Thermal Management Market

“Thermal Management market in Asia Pacific expected to account for the largest market share from 2019 to 2024.”

The region has emerged as a global focal point for large investments and business expansion opportunities. Moreover, increasing demand for effective thermal management solutions and systems from consumer electronics, automotive, defense, and healthcare sectors is also fueling the growth of the thermal management market in APAC.

Flourishing chip manufacturing companies in countries such as China and South Korea are contributing to the growth of the market in APAC. The region holds a major position in the global semiconductor chip manufacturing industry with China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan leading the industry due to the presence of companies such as SK Hynix Inc. (South Korea), Renesas Electronics Corporation (Japan), Toshiba Corporation (Japan), and Samsung Group (South Korea) in these countries.
